House hunters in Bellevue, Washington, have a new option to choose from — and this one’s historic.
A new home on the market is the very same one that Jeff Bezos was renting when he started Amazon in 1994. It’s a nearly 1,600-square-foot three-bedroom ranch house in Bellevue, Washington, just outside of Seattle.
The home looks very different from how it did in Bezos’ days thanks to a rebuild that happened in 2001, according to the Seattle Times. It does retain some of his additions, however, like a large mailbox that was meant to receive catalogs. The famous garage was also redone.
The house, on sale for $1.49 million, isn’t more expensive due to its historical significance.
That relatively low price for the region puts it in the range of many Amazon workers who may purchase it for “bragging rights,” Sullivan said.
This may seem like any random three-bedroom ranch house in Bellevue, Washington.
